This week ...... Christmas?
Today – beautiful, sunny. I unlocked the front door that enters directly into Parry Sound Books for the first time this year. We had an overnight snowfall but by mid day the snow was gone on the sidewalks and perhaps spring has come. But, as well as placing orders for summer stock I am about to bring the boxes and boxes and boxes of Christmas decorations up from the basement.
No, I’m not confused – but I may be crazy – to have agreed to let a film crew into Parry Sound Books this week to film a portion of Pete’s Christmas. Yes, a Christmas movie being filmed in mid- March. The film crew must have been the only happy people in Parry Sound this morning as the snow swirled and blew about. They are moving what’s left of our snow to their location for filming this week – they are the really crazy ones.
So, we are going to be decorating for Christmas – a task I both dread and love doing once a year. But it should also be lots of fun for a week at what is generally a very quiet and dreary time of year in Parry Sound. Their hours of filming will probably be reduced to 3 seconds. We’ll keep you posted if we expect to become film stars next Christmas!
